If You Ever Get Married in Florence...
I can suggest to you a great place to have your wedding reception. At the Villa Le Farnete, you are beseiged with belissima views over the city, as you are perched on a hill high above Florence. The cuisine is first rate, and the surroundings can't be beat.
The villa is actually in a small town outside called, Comeana-Carmignano (Prato).
Here is all the contact details:

Only an hour south by bus from Florence is San Gimignano. It is, to me, the most perfect representation and picturesque Tuscan village. It sits atop a hill and provides specatcular views over the Tuscan landscape. Set amongst valleys of vineyards and olive groves, it is the perfect escape from city life and travel. The town is clean, the people are nice and welcoming, and the food and wine... well, its Tuscany!
See my SITA bus tip on Florence for ticket info, or check out my San Gimignano page here for complete information about this wonderful city:

Little Shops on Bridge
Even if you are not shopping for gold, take the time to experience the Ponte Vecchio. Visit the statue in the middle, and the pigeon on its head, watch the river roll by, look at the tourists from around the world.
Train is the good way to reach...
Train is the good way to reach there. But if you are in a hurry, then try Airplane.=)
You can see most of the major attractions in the city center by foot.
Hope this map could be of help for those who wish to visit Firenze in the future.
Italy has the best ice cream called gelato. It's soooooo creamy! Florence is where I got my first taste of Italian ice cream so I will always remember this city as the gelato capitol of the world. We also found a side street shop selling the best Italian ice, real fruit chopped into finely crushed ice, oh, it tasted and felt so good in the summer heat of Florence.
